It all started in the hearts of a handful of children of Khaniara, a beautiful village near Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh, India on May 2009. Aashray took shape and multiplied to become a Beacon of Hope to over 150 children for a better future.
We took our roots in an old condemned hospital building very near to a Government Senior Secondary School. In the old condemned building where we started our school, there was no electricity, water, furniture – nothing. It was a rundown building with just the bare walls, with the paint peeling off. When it rained, the rooms would get flooded. Our children and staff would find whatever shelter they could under the staircase and corridors to avoid the cold wind and heavy downpour.
“Aashray organization is dedicated to promoting empowerment of people through educating one child at a time.
Imparting vocational skill to one family at a time, by working all the time.”
Today Aashray is running five schools in Himachal Pradesh, India with more than 400 students under our tutelage. We have qualified teachers who not only give education, but guide them with their career choices and are mentors to the children. We also provide Personality Development and Computer Classes to the students.
